“Clean with great prices”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

After a beautiful day riding motorcycles, we were happy to find this motel. We had heard it had been recently redone and we were very pleased with what we found. It was clean and comfortable and the staff was very courteous. Be sure to check it out when you are in this area. Low prices are a bonus too!

Room Tip: This motel is just outside of Tellico Plains which is at the end of the Cherohala Skyway - a great s...

Very nice and pleasant stay - we came up for a wedding and stayed 2 nights. Very welcoming check in, hotel was quiet and peaceful the whole time, brought my little doggie with me at no extra charge, room was nice and clean, free high speed wi-fi, grounds were clean and landscaped well. If you like that small town, quiet peaceful hotel stay, this is it. There's not much to do in Etowah, but I will say we ate at Michael's just seconds down the road and it was spectacular. There's plenty of food around the hotel, a lot within walking distance and a sidewalk to walk your pet down. Would definately stay there again.

This hotel was clean and we were very impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. There was no pool, 3 pieces of exercise equipment in the "fitness center" and the computer in the "business center was very slow.The room was very clean and neat. The free breakfast was minimally sufficient. Not much variety, no yogurt, two kinds of cereal, one waffle machine, etc. Overall, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor neighbors sounded like a herd of elephants above our heads. Get on top floor.

We picked Red Roof in Etowah, because it was the closest PET FRIENDLY hotel to Tellico Plains that we could find. We were very pleased with the fact that they did not charge extra for pets! The hotel is located in a town with not much around other than food and gas, which was fine. Tellico is a short drive and has a lot to do and see.
The hotel grounds were decent and the lobby was nice enough. Our room was average size and a huge plus for us was the Refrigerator! Nice Surprise!!
We were extremely disappointed with how dirty the room felt and the bedding was gross. Our blanket had burn holes and stains all over it. Without a doubt, the worst bedding I've seen. We checked for bedbugs, and found none, thankfully!
The TV was about 20 years old and in need of a serious upgrade.
I will try to find another property next visit, but would probably go back if there was nothing available to meet our needs.

Spent two nights in this hotel over Memorial Day weekend. They charged me 25$ more per night then the price online was. The girl at the reception desk said they were full, which was not true. Parking lot was half empty any time day or night. This is the only hotel in Etowah and they will increase price on you any way they want. The room was not cleaned, the towels were not changed, had to call the reception desk to get soaps. The receptionist told me if you come down I will fix you up. The hotel is close to very pretty Tellico Plains and they are using the location to rip you off.

I travel to Etowah on business monthly and have stayed at this property on and off for the last 6 years. It was previously a Sleep Inn. Family owned and managed the staff is always friendly, the rooms are above average and always very clean. This is the only hotel in Etowah but they don't act like it.

Room Tip: The back side of the property is best, 2nd floor on the south side away from the McDonalds drive thr...

Considering that Etowah is a very small town it was a nice surprise to find this hotel to stay at! The hotel is located near the Etowah Train depot and only a few mins from the main downtown area of the town. The lobby was clean and neat. Checking in was a breeze and the rooms were nice. The Breakfast buffet is somewhat small but it does offer ready to make waffles! I would suggest getting to the buffet early though as they don't really keep it very stocked. But overall for we enjoyed our stay and when we are back in town again will be staying here.
